I agree.  It would be fantastic if there was a DDK for XCP.  That issue is
annoying when trying to use the XenServer DDK with XCP.  I've been trying to
do some work with the OFED and XCP.  It is bad enough that the OFED is not
included in XCP in first place, but being forced to use the XenServer DDK
instead of a XCP DDK is a bit much.  I love XCP, but this is a bit silly.

Subject: Re: [Xen-API] XCP 1.1 DDK for OVS Build

I was able to get the 5.6 SP2 DDK VM installed and build OVS 1.3.0 without 
any problems. Unfortunately the kernel name used for 5.6 SP2 isn't the 
same as for XCP 1.1 so I'm not going to be able to just install the new 
OVS 1.3 based kernel module into XCP, at least not cleanly.

XenServer 5.6 SP2:


XCP 1.1:


Does anyone know the easiest path forward?  My plan is to install the XCP 
kernel source into the 5.6 SP2 DDK VM, compile and install it and then 
recompile OVS 1.3.  Does that sound reasonable?

It's a bit crazy that we don't have a DDK VM for XCP.  If there's a 
design or build doc somewhere someone could pass on to me I'd be happy to 
build the DDK VM and make it available to the community.  Given the number 
of requests there seems to be a need.
